Happy Feet! Morgan and Milo Review and Giveaway!

My mother tells a story that we all laugh about now, but was so not funny at the time.  I have two younger brothers, and Mom says she “never left the shoe store without Ryan in tears.”  (Sorry Ryan, I am selling you out for the sake of the blog)  The reason is that my parents, being careful about how and where they spent their money, refused to buy super-expensive shoes for him.  Of course “all the other kids” were getting tennis shoes in the hundreds that were supposed to make you jump just as high as that famous basketball player.  Yeah, except Mom and Dad didn’t have the salary of a Chicago Bulls point guard.

That was twenty-plus years ago.  Today, I am so thankful for companies like Morgan and Milo! Morgan and Milo offers cool, fun, and funky options for your children’s feet at a budget-friendly price.  From the website: “Morgan & Milo grew out of a desire to provide parents an alternative to high-priced European styles or inexpensive character-driven shoes. We are inspired by the simple, enduring qualities of the timeless brands of our childhood. Classic and comfortable, our footwear is well-suited for everyday wear.”

This statement couldn’t be more truthful!   Have y’all ever had that moment when you hear yourself say something to your kids and realize you have become your mother?  That was me in the shoe store last spring.  Emily needed tennis shoes, so we went looking and she spotted a cute little pair of sparkly shoes that she HAD to have.  No price on the shoe.  So, she tries them on, falls in love, the lady rings me up, and I almost DIED when she gave me my total.   So, the shoes stayed there, we left with Emily in tears and me with mom guilt, but I was NOT buying shoes for my three year old for that high a price tag.  So, I went on a hunt to find something similar, and all peace was restored when the Easter Bunny arrived a few weeks later:

Can the bunny bring Momma some shoes next time?

See those cute shoes?  Morgan and Milo’s Sparkle Mary Janes! They quickly became her favorite shoe and we couldn’t get them off her feet.   I have been a die-hard fan ever since.  I was thrilled to come home last week and find a box waiting from Morgan and Milo.  They kindly sent us a pair of Boys’ LTT Slip Ons and Girls’ Ginger Floral to try out for the upcoming fall weather.


The kids LOVED their shoes.  My son is seven and so of course his comment was “AWESOME!  No laces!”  Since I have to remind him a thousand times a week to tie his shoelaces, I thought this was pretty awesome too.  My daughter is a shoe fanatic (like her Mom) and squealed when she saw the decorative flower.  Here’s a better look at the detail on the side:


Morgan and Milo shoes are incredibly well made.  The uppers are soft and pliable and all the stitching and detail work is extra secure.  Both kids agree they are comfy and Em’s Sparkle Mary Janes from the Easter Bunny were still in perfect shape when she outgrew them.   Morgan and Milo has tons of options for your kids’ toes and I promise you will love them as much as we do.



Don’t want to wait for the Easter Bunny to bring you some?  Morgan and Milo is offering TWO lucky Not So Blog readers their own pair!  We are giving away a pair of the LTT Slip Ons to one lucky boy,  and one lucky girl can choose either the Sparkle Mary Jane or the Tessa Mary Jane.   We are so excited about this giveaway so that two kids get to experience shoe bliss!

  5. I love the Boys LTT Oxford – Strong Blue Flame. These are adorable and cracked me up. I can just see my little guy running around in these flame shoes!

  6. I really like the Avery Hook & Loop shoe for boys. Love the colors! 🙂 While I have both a boy and a girl that could use a new pair of shoes, I think I will enter for the girl’s pair because I’m afraid with no laces or straps, the boy’s pair would come off his feet too easily.

  7. I love the LTT High boots in Semi-Sweet Chocolate – great with twirly skirts and tights! Please enter me for the girl’s shoes drawing. Thanks!

  8. Love the Avery Hook & Loop. I’m entering for the boy’s shoe. My girl has all the shoes she can possibly wear!
